    Would for the swedish winter not a Porsche Cayenne the best choose? Generally an SUV....

    Yes, in those days I had a Blazer, today a G500..., but I don´t like the Cayenne, or any other water cooled Porsche.

    I don't like the Cayenne too. It looks like an car with high suspensions >.<, but the G500 is a good choose. An real 4x4 shape....For myself I like the new M-Class or Jeep Grand Cherokee as well.

    Looks like the renderings on the previous page...? Or do you mean that you KNOW it will look like this?

    mia culpa, I didn't check page 1 prior to posting, only assumed that since an "anything" camouflaged car was shown, the magazine photo wasn't.
    But I do hope they build it, so I can race it.

    Yachts and Exotic Cars peoples..not just exotic cars.. show some more yachts with the cars... The thread is becoming just about supercars now.

    Yes Yachtluver, it was bound to happen...:D

    I did a search on "Ferrari Porsche" and found 42 threads containing these words..., so it is not the first time we are derailing into the exotic cars..:)

    But you are still welcome to add something closer to the topic!

    Airship, as none of the Dutch steps to their own defence here, I'll play the good immigrant and do it for them.
    Ever heard of Spyker cars?:confused:

    Before I saw the C8 at the TopMarques show in Monaco a couple of years ago, I had never heard of them. It is a very special car, with many nice details, but perhaps too many. Seems to be more for collectors than a drivers car. The D12 might change this...?

    Lars,

    I'm not an expert on this. I only look at cars for their lines, and that can just as well be a Seat or a Renault as a Zonda or whatever. A nice line needs to be appreciated - whether it's in a boat or a car. An unfair line gives me a stomac cramp every time I see it (unfortunately it happens all too often on boats).

    About Spyker, I thought their speciality was custom cars (one-offs) but their site is not very informative in that respect. I agree with you that there's too much "stuff" on the models that are on their site.

    Cheers,

    Bruno

    Hey AMG, does the older You Tube clip with the Zonda and the Wally 118 count still?

    However, i just realised that they pulled the video clip because of something to do with copyright claims by the BBC? I wanted that one with the Zonda supercar so that it would be fitting for the thread however, i will post one with just the Wally 118. This is pretty popular and no doubt has been seen already by many.

    Guys,

    I've come close to hitting the "move" button about 5 times on this thread. All 5 times have been in the last 30 minutes, but I keep bailing on the idea. The fact that I keep coming back to this tells me something... I don't think the General Discussion forum is the place for this thread.

    ALL OF US work very hard to share and convey pertinent information relating to yachts, but when newcomers visit YF and they see a thread of this nature, I don't think it's a good reflection on the quality of our content.

    I'm moving this thread because I think it belongs in the Yacht Club forum. I'm almost certain someone may take exception with me on this, but please understand... I'm only trying to make decisions that are best for the community and our continued growth.

    I enjoy talking about cars as much as anyone else. But this is a forum about yachts... even if they are in the presence of nice cars. Let's try not to dilute our subjects.

    It's been a long day. Turning in and heading back down to the show in the morning. Thanks!

    Carl

    to whome it may concern:
    There are 2 ways of getting a drive around the ring with very experienced drivers: Ring Taxi, Sabine Schmidt (some videos in the "topgear"-section of bbc-international), using an BMW M5 and a newer service with an race-viper as you can find it on the race-game "GTR/GTR²" of simbin. If you want to understand why german cars get more and more hp and we do like it, take a ride if you're near Koeln/Colone. Should be something between 100 and 150 EU.

    In the mid eighties I was driving my Porsche Turbo from Stockholm, Sweden to the Genua boatshow in Italy. I was going to stop in Paris for the 6-hour boatrace on Seine as well so I was on a part of the Autobahn I was not so familiar with. At an "umleitung" I found myself in a pile-up of cars on a smaller road and at a T-cross a police-man pointed at my car and said I should go off the main road. I was a little confused but drove on until I suddenly was at the Nürburgring where the locals was invited for a trackday! The F1-circuit was just built and before the first race they probably wanted cars to even out the surface? I am not sure, but I was driving around the circuit for an hour or two with a bunch of other fast and not so fast cars. A nice and unexpected experience!

    In Paris the day after, I could see my partner from the Offshore racing circuit, be the overall winner of the 6-hour race, not bad!

    Thought it had been deleted. Couldn't find it without a search.

    A few pictures to get this thread back on the right track ;)

    The first two pictures are of a Ferrari 360 Spyder and the last is a yellow Lamborghini.

    Don't want the moderators slitting our throats ;).

    But won't let you down. Something conservative :).

    The top and bottom pictures are of Ferrari Enzos, the middle is of a Ferrari 360 Modena Spyder.

    Nice nice TK, espcially now the shots are with cars and yachts and maybe women(shhh).. gives a bit of both worlds. I saw a smaller yacht there .. it's name was Moon Shine.. i know this name has nothing to do with the light comming from the moon,lol.
    TK you have some shots of cool cars and cool yachts too.. the Le Grand Bleu, I spotted the stern of CatWalk.
